‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Dead at 36

An actor from the "Game of Thrones" has died after suffering lifelong health issues.

Darren Kent, who played Goatherd at Slaver's Bay, has passed away at the age of 36, reported Fox News.

Kent suffered from a very rare skin disease as well as osteoporosis and arthritis.

Sad Day

Now, I will be honest, when I first saw the original story in the news, I was just hoping it was not Khaleesi or John Snow. I was also quite fond of Arya, so I took a quick breath when I found out it was Kent.

He only appeared in one episode of the show, but that is far from representative of this man's career.

His IMDb profile has 40 credits, with six credits still in development. He has actually played in some blockbuster movies.

For instance, he was in "Snow White and the Huntsmen," "Les Misérables," and "Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves."

He also had talent behind the camera, directing two shorts, two TV series, and a movie called "Meadow Lane" in 2016.

His short film "You Know Me" won Best Director and Best Short Film at the London International Film Festival in January.

Kent's rep, Carey Dodd Associated, paid tribute, stating, "Our thoughts and love are with his family in this difficult time. Darren was not only a talented actor, director, and writer, he was truly one of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

"It has been a privilege and pleasure to have been a part of his journey. RIP my friend."

Ben Trebilcook, a screenwriter who worked on "You Know Me" with Kent, stated, "A true character who was Always creating and forever upbeat and encouraging, Darren will be sorely missed."

Rest in peace.
